If you find yourself spending an hour or longer getting ready for work or seemingly endless primping sessions prior to going out for the night, you may be able to shorten your prep time by getting a Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatment.
Keratin itself is a protein that naturally already in your hair. A keratin hair straightening treatment adds additional keratin to your hair then uses the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. The entire process only takes about 90 minutes or two hours, but the results can last up to two to three months.
Reduce Blow Dry Time by 50%
If you usually wear your hair straight, a Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatment can cut your blow dry time in half. So, for example, it if typically takes you about 30 minutes to get your hair completely blown out after washing it, you can be done and out the door in as little as 15 minutes or less.
Another benefit of getting a keratin treatment is that it virtually eliminates the frizz your hair gets when it’s rainy or humid outside. That means you don’t have to worry about those little one off hairs springing out of your head when you are walking in a light rain.
Keratin Hair Maintenance
Maintaining your keratin treatment is simple. The first thing you have to remember is not to wash your hair for about three to four days after your keratin treatment is applied. This gives the keratin solution time to really bond to your hair.
If you forget and accidentally wash your hair, don’t worry. Your keratin treatment will still keep your hair straight, but it won’t last as long.
After the don’t wash period is over, you should use a special type of shampoo that is free of sodium sulfate. This helps prolong the adhesion of the keratin to your hairs’ natural proteins.
